About the Center

Our diverse, multi-disciplinary team focuses on the health effects, risk, and remediation of metal contaminants in relation to their effects on cognitive health in older age.  The overall goal of MEMCARE (Metals and Metal Mixtures: Cognitive Aging, Remediation and Exposure Sources) is to understand and mitigate effects of exposure to metals and metal mixtures on late-life cognitive health. To achieve this goal, we have designed a highly integrated, solutions-based program consisting of 4 Research Projects and 4 Cores.
